Celebrated historic Santal and Peasant Rebellion Day


Md. Nurul Islam Nayan, Dinajpur Correspondent: Historical Santal and Peasant Rebellion Day is celebrated. The Santal Rebellion is a glorious chapter in the history of the struggle against British imperialism. The Santals, led by the four brothers Sidhu, Kanu, Chand and Bhairab, resisted British imperialism and their local collaborators, the feudal lords, the usurers, their lathiyal forces and the Daroga police. On June 30, 1955, a large gathering of 10,000 Santal peasants gathered at the village of Bhagnadihi in Bhagalpur, India. Santal and Vidroh Peasants’ Day was celebrated on June 30 at Mirzapur Sadar Dinajpur Living Boat Tribal Organization. Indigenous leader Himan Murmu, the founding president of the organization, said in his speech that we humbly remember the brave leaders including Shahid Sidhu and Kanhu for their glorious history as leaders who stood up against oppression and tyranny in the history of the Santal nation. But even today the people of the Santal race in the country are in the same situation and condition. So let us strive to build our beautiful future with inspiration from that glorious history. And to do this we must be organized. Because unity is the easiest way to solve any problem. Let us build the unity of the Santal nation regardless of party affiliation.
